I am looking for expert advisors especially in the field of operations and finance. What is the best advice on how to find top advisors?
Finding isn't the problem. Persuading them to take an interest and make a commitment is the part that requires an effort. Remember that to become an advisor, some kind of motivation is required. Get to know how your candidates are personally motivated. What will being an advisor do to benefit them directly, something they care about? It's not just about what they can do for you. It has to be what participating will do for them.
